Not sure which one you mean but there is one in the days leading up to Day of the Dead.

Gracias, that is the one, but do you know the EXACT dates or do you have a link to where it is listed? I cannot find it in a google search, but someone must know.

Michoacan is notorious for not properly publicizing their Concoursos or Ferias. However, you might get a good start here:

If you don't find exactly what you are looking for< i would recommend contacting David:

There is also a Yahoo Message Board for Michoacan:

Yes, I am now remembering that this was true years ago when I went frequently. Basically you have to live in the town and check the church walls for posters! Well, none of those websites were any better, so guess that I will have to start calling around. Thank you for your valiant efforts to help me!

Just a guess, but last year it ran from Sunday through Sunday (which makes sense from a tourism point of view). So the same this year?

That appears to be the way it will be, thanks for your reply! I'll make my plans to get there that weekend. Have you gone and do you recommend any hotels in Patzcuaro?

I was last in Pátzcuaro in April 2013 and stayed at the Mesón San Antonio. It was wet and chilly and the room therefore felt somewhat chilly too, although they did provide firewood. Given that the weather is always a bit like that, you might want to find somewhere that has 'proper' heating. Your main problem, though, might be finding anywhere at all at such short notice! Good luck.
